About Ms. Jackson

Hi Panther Family! My name is Ms. Jackson and I am so excited to be a part of the University Park team this school year! I am originally from Houston but grew up and attended high-school in small town Boerne, Texas and loved growing up in the beautiful hill country. I have a younger brother that attends Texas Tech University and I have the sweetest British Lab named Riley but want to adopt a rescue dog soon! 
 
I graduated from Baylor University (Sic 'Em) with a degree in Child Development and Family Studies. While at Baylor, I went to Guatemala twice for mission trips over the summer and worked in a special needs hospital there. For the past three years, I have been a Behavioral Therapist in the Dallas area and have worked with many different children in the in-home and clinic settings. But now, I am so incredibly excited to be here at UP! 
 
I believe that every child has the ability to learn and grow at their own pace when given the tools and support they need to be successful.
